Confidently explore our amazing underwater world
Have you ever fancied exploring the underwater world but just never got around to it because you either don’t know where to go, don’t have any equipment or because life has just simply got in the way. Confidently explore our amazing underwater world that exists right on our door step on one of our snorkel safaris with an experienced snorkel guide.
Our beautiful Shelly Beach, abundant with marine life, is protected from the ocean swell by a reef on the right hand side of the beach – this means conditions are almost always calm with good visibility. The maximum depth is around 12 metres, although with many shallower depths ranging from 2 to 6 metres, it is an excellent site for divers and snorkelers alike. Since becoming a Marine Reserve in March 2002, Shelly Beach is home to a huge array of underwater species including Wobbegong and Port Jackson sharks (they won’t bite!!), the big beautiful Blue Groper (they love to follow you around) and loads of big schools of fish.
Whether this is your first or 100th underwater experience you are guaranteed to see some spectacular sea life!
